... (0.25–1.64 ms −1 ) than the wild turkeys (0.26–3.26 ms −1 ) and increased their stride frequency at a higher rate. They also displayed large lateral oscillations, i.e. waddling, during walking that translated into relatively high medio-lateral ground reaction forces and lateral kinetic energy (3.5 times...

... of stopping larger insects while minimizing damage when the mechanical energy of those prey exceeds the web's capacity. Large insects are typically both heavier and faster flying than smaller prey, but speed plays a disproportionate role in determining total kinetic energy, so we predicted that orb webs may...

... substrates. We quantified morphology using the polar moment of inertia, a parameter used in calculating kinetic energy that describes shell area distribution and resistance to rotation. We quantified mussel locomotion by determining the ratio of rotational ( K rot ) to translational kinetic energy ( K trans...

...%). The bird's response to the unexpected perturbation fell into three general categories: (1) conversion of vertical energy( E V = E P + E Kv ) to horizontal kinetic energy ( E Kh ), (2) absorption of E V through negative muscular work(-Δ E com ), or (3) converting E P to vertical kinetic energy ( E Kv...

...Katsufumi Sato; Paul J. Ponganis; Yoshiaki Habara; Yasuhiko Naito SUMMARY Emperor penguins leap from the water onto the sea ice. Their ability to reach above-water height depends critically on initial vertical speed of their leaping, assuming that the kinetic energy is converted to gravitational...
